Volunteering work is very rewarding. You are not paid but you have unique opportunities to make a difference to people's lives or to the natural environment. You can use your skills and experience to help people in the local community or spend your time working with others on conservation projects.

We offer a variety of volunteering opportunities at the Union, from helping out at festivals to encouraging other students to get involved in sports and avtivities. Volunteer work helps with your future career, it proves to your future employer that you have developed personal and life skills while at university and that you are a committed person. This is especially useful for CVs, application forms and job interviews. 

There are also many volunteering opportunities for students through UEA's Volunteer scheme, whether on or around campus, in the local community or further afield. For more information log into Careers Central's website or find out more about volunteering here.
